Major Accident On “Expendables 2” Set

One stuntman has been killed and another critical injured after an incendiary went awry during filming of Nu Image/Millennium’s “The Expendables 2” in Bulgaria reports E! News.

The unidentified stuntmen were shooting a second-unit explosion scene on Thursday night at the Lake Ognyanovo reservoir outside Sofia when the accident occurred. One died at the scene, the other rushed to hospital where he is now in a stable condition after undergoing a five-hour operation.

None of the cast was present when the accident occurred as principal photography was taking place a few hours away at the mountain resort village of Bansko.

A statement from Nu Image/Millennium says “Our hearts go out to the families and those on the production affected by this tragedy. The filmmakers are working closely with the authorities in responding to and investigating this accident”.
